As a number of items can be hyperlinked in a word document, is there any chance that the four permanent hyperlinks are to files on your own system rather than to internet pages? You can clear the history as often as you like but if the pages are files on your own system, they will not be removed? Is one of them the home page for Internet Explorer? Are the other three addresses for frame contents as part of that home page? When you clear the history list of IE, if you home page is viewable offline, then you will still have it listed in the hyperlinks menu, I think.
Give me some more details about what the links you are trying to clear actually say and I will try to work out what is going on.
